Doug Turner writes, "I am on my paternity leave and I get this idea. I want a way that I can set my son down in front of Mozilla (when he is old enough), and make sure that he can not go to any site that I think are not for him.
"I know that there are a bunch of programs that do this like 'cyber-babysitter' or whatever, but they have two problems: (a) they are doing the rating instead of me, and (b) domains pop up faster than these pieces of software can keep up with.
"So the idea is to have a button on Mozilla that will lock the navigator to a paticular domain/website. I have a proof of concept working now. It is missing a few things but it is a start. Check it out... (requires Mozilla)"

I was taught that "lock" means "prevent from opening" such as when people lock doors or files. With that definition, it seems that the writer said "...the idea is to have a button on Mozilla that will [prevent] the navigator [from opening] to a paticular domain/website." The writer should have said "attach" if he meant "to bring together". Now applaud me.
